    You need to know the principle of Halal and Haram. All the beast and predators are Haram. Some animals human nature doesn’t like to eat.

    The rest are halal.

    Yes sir that’s why I wanted to know application of that principle. So my friend asked me I would eat these dishes and I am in doubt.

    Shark is a predator so it is Haram. Not sure about octopus, if it humts like a predator it is haram too. Other animals listed here are not predictors so are halal.

    Predators means beastlike animals which kills their prey like a beast. Other fish and chicken too eat other fish and insecta but not in a beastlike way. So they are not predators and not Haram.

    What about crabs sir, do they fall in category of predators?

    Are crabs considered in the category of predators? It being halal or haram depends upon answer to this question. I don’t think it is counted as predator. So it will be halal.
